Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

After a long hot summer the last two weeks in Córdoba were a welcome break for some, I say for some as I´m pretty sure I didn´t appriciate it as much as the natives! For two weeks straight we have experienced Cordoba´s equalivent of stormy season: lots of thunder storms and heavy rain.

As much as I love listening to the sound of the rain beating off my window when I´m all tucked up in my nice warm bed with my hot water bottle, and believe me I do love it, I was glad to wake up this morning to a nice sunny day.

I think what I love the most about heavy rain is it´s ability to completely change the atmosphere. The change from the high summer temperatures to the lower winter temperatures is never an easy change, in fact it can be rather shocking to the system. However, throw in two weeks of stormy weather and, while unpleasant at the time, it makes it so much easier. The air seems fresher, cleaner and lighter than before, granted it´s colder but there is something really nice about the cool crisp air.

So; with the rain comes change: a renewal of the atmosphere and the temperatures. To capture this renewal I have decided to share some photos of Córdoba after the rain! My way to celebrate it´s departure and welcome the new season. I hope you enjoy!

  1. Córdoba is one of my favouite cities, so I really enjoyed seeing your lovely photographs, Giana.

    It´s always a bit of a shock to get heavy autumn rains and cool weather after such a long hot summer, but once you get used to it, it´s good to get out your boots and cardigans to enjoy the change of seasons.

  2. Images that renews and refreshes the body, mind and heart. Live has so much to offer, all we need is to open our eyes on the beauty and adventure around us. Wishing you and your family all the joys of the holidays.
